“I want to rule the music industry” - EMON CHATTERJEE

When the heartbeat of Indian Idol, Emon is eliminated everybody including Mini and Anu Maliik, cried for him but he did not shed a single tear. He came across as a brave soldier, who is ready to take the Indian film industry by storm.

You seem to have taken the verdict quite sportingly. Or are you hiding your disappointment?

I am not hiding anything. Definitely I am sad that I’ve to leave now. But it`s ok… it is a part of the game. It could have been anyone’s turn this time. It could have been Prashant bhaiya or it could have been me. Now I’ll go out of here, practice hard and become the best singer. I promise that to those who voted for me.

Did you expect it?

I did expect it today. We have come to a stage in the contest when anyone can be eliminated. It could have been Amit or Prashant, too. If I was shocked then I would have cried a lot and said ‘I don’t want to go’. I didn’t say a single word. Today was my turn to go… it’s that simple.

Does this verdict prove that Prashant and Amit are better singers than you?
Won’t say better singers… but it is for sure that my training helped me a lot in my good singing, while Prashant bhaiya has never received training… still he sings well. This is a huge thing. Apart from this, he is a very good human being.
About Amit bhaiya, from day one I said that he has the talent to be the Indian Idol. He is original. No one ever said that he imitates anyone and he consistently gave good performance. He is an able candidate to be the Indian Idol.

Do you imitate Sonu Nigam consciously or it is just a coincident?

Absolutely not. I never consciously imitate him. And I don’t believe I sound like Sonu Nigam at all. Two people can be similar in looks and voice… it can happen everywhere. It is just a coincidence. Why should I imitate him? After all he is already there in the music industry… why would people take me if he is already there… why should I imitate someone who is ruling the music industry?

Javed declared that you can neither make it as a playback singer nor as a stage performer. Are you willing to challenge him and prove him wrong?

I don’t want to comment on that… I guess he was hurt or irritated by something… it`s ok… he is an elder and he is the best lyricist in India… I`d rather not talk about his talent. But he advised me that I shouldn’t sound like Sonu Nigam and I’ll defiantly work hard to sound different. I have a dream that one day I’ll sing a song written by him and composed by Anu Maliik. Hope, it comes true one day.

You said that you want to be a true Indian Idol. Tell us about it.

I meant that I want to be an Idol in the true sense. The real idol for the masses… the people of India. I want to take music career to new heights. I want to rule the music industry.

Who would you vote for? Amit or Prashant?

I’ll vote for both. But otherwise I would pray that Amit bhaiya wins. It`s not that Prashant bhaiya is not good. He is a good singer, but Amit bhaiya is even better. I want Amit Paul to be the Indian Idol.

What are your future plans?

I want to work a lot harder on my voice and be the best singer in India. After my board exams I want to come back to Mumbai to start my career in the film industry.

Will you try acting?

If I get a chance then I’ll definitely give it a try. But the deal would be that I get to sing for myself in the movie. I would like to be like Kishore Kumar—who was a good actor, composer, music director, lyricist and producer all packed into a single personality. I would like to be a versatile performer.

One thing that you’ve gained here that you’ll cherish for life?

The comments of the judges. Those golden words will be with me for life and that is the most important thing that I’ve gained here. They will help me improve my voice. Each word is worth lakhs of rupees. They are priceless.

I am a regular viewer of Indian Idol although I do live in Bangladesh. Me, my son and my wife also have been enjoying this program. My son (7 years) likes EMON and CHANG very much.
About EMON, my comments is:
His voice is like a fluit. When I saw the song performed by both Sonu and Emon our judgement was Emon is more better than Sonu on that song, when Emon sunged: Bay chen dilko kayese araam du... Only this line Emon was really mind blowing.
I hate the judgment system of Indian Idol. Because only supporters can't be a real judge. They are just biased. They don't know who is the real singer. In that sense, our declaration on the finalists were: 1. Amit Paul, 2. Emon Chatt. 3. Puja Chatt.
I do pray for Emon that one day he will rule the music industry of not only in India but also in the South East Asia region.

Being one of the regular viewers of the great show i would like to say that emon is a great singer.His singing style doesn't ressemble with any singers.His voice naturally reminds us of somebody else than what fault has he?But he shouldnot hesitate to say about prashant that he has increased a lot in his singing and is also an eligible candidate for indian idol as much as amit is.Its a tough competition and anything can happen.

binita said...

Actually Prashant has increased a lot in his singing quality a lot and his votes should not only be blamed for his position because he is as eligible as amit now and nobody should hesitate to accept prashant as the best man..His simplicity,truthness in smile and ppositive attitude are so divine

I dont understand that how can the indion idol can be so rude and unfair to the contestents so many good contestent are gone but the bad one's are still there like Prashant Tamang he made every good singer out. Let me name some fantastic singers who are eliminated now Puja,Abhijeet,Emon,Deepali and many more....And specialy Emon he was the best.

Sweety said...

Hi Emon,

i really love ur voice, chote Sonu Nigam g....:D

Abdul Rasheed said...

I like Emon's performance. He has a nice voice too. I think both Javed and Anu Malik hate this poor guy. This was very obvious when the lady anchor, i don't know her name, asked help to announce the name of the eliminated contestant on the day Emon was out. Javed jumped from his seat and when he came to the stage he shook hand of Prasant only and disregard Emon's respect. I never saw a single episode of Indian Idol. I observed all these from the clips posted in YOU TUBE. Don't worry Emon. You take all these positively and as you mentioned in your interview your days are coming.

Good luck
